Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu great Braulio Estima will be making his MMA debut today for Titan FC, unlike most men who receive hype like his. Estima is not a hot young prospect, Estima is a grizzled vet who is considered the best in the world at grappling.
Years of teaching his craft he is now about to see if the teacher can also fight, back in 2010 he attempted to make his MMA debut, but the card he was suppose to fight on was trashed, and his debut was pushed back till now with Titan FC.
Estima will face Chris Holland (5-3) who is riding a 3 fight win streak and his last fight was a TKO of former UFC’er Phil Baroni. All 5 of Holland’s wins have come by of TKO/KO, this will be the classic grappler vs striker match up. Should Estima grab on to a body part of Holland’s this could be a very short fight, but if Estima leaves his head up Holland could put him to sleep.
This fight will serve as the Co-Main event of Titan FC 24 and will be seen live and free on AXS tv, either way this fight goes we will learn a lot about the BJJ master. Below is highlight video of some of his BJJ competition, go get to know him.
